Homebrewed Christianity celebrates its 50th episode, and there’s no better way to do it than with Tony Jones, author of The New Christians, interviewing Dr. Bart Ehrman. Dr. Ehrman is the James A. Gray Distinguished Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and controversial author of several best-selling books, including God’s Problem: How the Bible Fails to Answer Our Most Important, Why We Suffer, Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why, and his most recent Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (And Why We Don’t Know About Them).
The two didn’t get into too much detail about Bart’s latest book, since biblical contradictions aren’t new to Tony. They instead discuss Bart’s motivations for writing his books that many find so challenging to faith in the authority of Scripture. Subjects that come up in the interview are philosophical hermeneutics, objectivity, inerrancy vs. infallibility, and the merciless Stephen Colbert.

OK. We always say this, but this one is a must-listen.
